I enjoyed reading this book and learning so much about the history of adoption in this country, as well as the very personal journey taken by Sue herself when she felt that the time was right to search for her birth mother. I found it particularly fascinating as we were both in the Princess Alice Emergency Hostel for mothers and babies in 1951! I enjoyed the special insight this gave me as I was never able to ask the questions of my birth mother that she was able to ask of hers.
If you are interested in adoption for whatever reason then this really is a must read book
The story about the hunt for their fathers was very interesting as it's not a topic that is covered in many books about adoption. In fact, having read the new chapter I just had to read the rest of the book all over again to remind myself of the original story and the social history aspect of adoption. The issues today are different from those that the girls' birth mother encountered but this book is still the best one I've read about finding lost birth parents and family members.
I recommend it to anyone who wants to understand the whole adoption issue of the 50s and 60s combined with a true life story - wonderful!
Marjory which was wonderful the way they are mentioned, and it was great to know how they got
back together as a family, should give hope to any-one that is adopted, not all children given up are
because they are not wanted or loved but in the early days not much help was given not like today
